L.I. Ducks: Going Bluefishing

From the desk of:  THE WEBBED SPIKES NINE

First Place Ducks gotta stomp the Fish while they're down!

Bridgeport leads 2015 Ferry Cup Series 11-10


Game One
Long Island Ducks
Bridgeport Bluefish
Ballpark at Harbor Yard

LONG ISLAND DUCKS: Flock can turn Liberty Division into a two team race by filleting the Fish now.

The Ducks split 4 games against the Camden RiverSharks earlier this the month.

Otherwise, they have won every series played in August.  After taking 3 of 4 from the Patriots in Somerset, the Flock returned home over the weekend to gain vindication with a 2 of 3 series win over Camden.

The Long Island Ducks are now 16-6 in August, remaining the hottest team in the league.

With Sunday's 5-1 Long Island victory and Somerset's loss to the Revs, the Ducks enter Monday's action one full game in first place ahead of the Patriots, and 2 games ahead of the Bridgeport Bluefish.

The Fish, in turn, defeated the Skeeters in Sugar Land, setting the stage for the Liberty Division's latest showdown with first place implications - not before a long ride home from Texas however.  On the other hand, the Ducks farthest jaunt this past week was their trip to New Jersey.

The Bridgeport Bluefish will host this time.  They own a slim 11-10 advantage in the season series.

In truth, these teams have taken turns battering each other, with little middle ground.  After the Bridgeport Bluefish won 5 of the first 6 meetings of the season, the Ducks bounced back with a 3-1 series win, and followed that with a 4 game sweep.  The Fish rebounded with a sweep during encounter number five, while the teams split a pair their last time around.

There's No Time Like the Present - The Fish are only 3-7 in their last 10 games, seemingly making this a perfect time for Long Island recapturing control of this season long Ferry Cup Series, and essentially eliminating the Fish from what is presently 3-team race.
